Hi Crafty Friends!
My Christmas celebrating parent friends seem to fall into one of two categories:
- “We have an Elf on the Shelf. Finding new and creative things to do with it each night is the bane of my existence.”
- “No way in heck will my family EVER have an Elf on the Shelf. I have enough on my plate.”
A few friends enjoy elf duty, but they are pretty few and far between.
Two years ago my oldest took over “elf duties”. Since the two of us have been doing it together, it’s brought Christmas to a whole new level of fun.
The two of us sit down at the beginning of “elf season” and brainstorm a list of 25 fun things that our elves can do that year. We buy any supplies we need at the dollar store, hide them away in a closet, and refer to our list whenever we need an idea.
